Where do you buy your pellets?
« on: February 12, 2019, 04:06:08 AM »
Aloha,  Just returned from the post office with my box from Amazon.  Ordered 2 tins of JSB Match Diabolo Exact King MKII Heavy .25 Cal, 33.95 Grains, Domed, 300ct for my Mrod.   One tin smashed, open and all the pellets escaped except about 20 rattling in the box.  The other tin was dented up pretty badly so didn't bother to salvage any.  The box was definitely too large and the bubble pack popped.  Since I live in Hawaii, haven't found any shops that carry them.  Really want to try them out on the feral pigs tearing up my yard.

I prefer Trenier for pellets and the prices are great but he doesn't handle a lot of the more inexpensive wad cutters for plinking so then I resort to PA.

Pyramid Air, Airgun Depot, or Trenier Outdoors is your best be for pellets. They are well packaged and will survive the shipping gorillas.

Sorry about the lost pellets. Now you know about Amazon shipping and pellets...others have complained, but they haven't figured it out yet. Some packages fare better than others.

Check out the latest package picked up this morning.  Maybe the pellets in the glove are the ones that escaped the other day.   Had good luck with Pyramid Air.  The Nomad II made the canoe ride to Hawaii no problem.

WALMART does not know how to pack pellets either.  I was picking up at the store and got a chance to complain to the clerk's FACE.  The face looked back at me like - And I should care why?

Pyramyd Air, Airgun Depot & Trenier. Those three know how to pack pellets to survive shipping.
Let's face it, a deal on pellets isn't a deal at all if the pellets arrive damaged.

I'll be following this thread. PA and AG will ship out here, but they charge almost a 100 bucks for shipping.   >:(

I've been ordering my pellets from Midway (shipping packing methods leave quite a bit to be desired, but the pellets survive), but I would like to try other offerings besides Crosman and H&N.

pyramyd air. tins are inserted in a foam surround. they've always arrived in great condition. However, I'm in Ohio and so is pyramyd so the carrier doesn't have as many opportunities to trash them.
